Crushing defeats, every dollar a man owns thrown across the table, quarter after quarter. Your own friends turning on you like vicious animals.  In the morning, the sounds of shuffling as I walk to the shower. Knee deep in a sea of redeemable cans and bottles. The sound of the silence a second before
your full house king high is trumped by a full house ace high. Talk of concealed carry and socks full of quarters. In Vegas, someone drawls, they’d kill you for that.

Nostalgia is the unhappy’s weapon of mass destruction. And it’s the professional gambler’s most powerful tool: with one mediocre win, you’ll lose dollar after dollar in its limelight. The wheel of life spins on,
and
I’d rather bet it all on 00 at an American table than break even.
Breaking even always leaves you wondering if you could have won big, if you could have hit bottom. No one sings of breaking even. Then again, there’s no sense in playing roulette with a Jerico 941 either.

So one last time, folks… until the next roadhouse down the line.

Castlevania (XX XXXXXXX XXX, Somerville [Davis Square])
9pm first hand
5 card draw
texas hold’em
quarter ante
nothing wild

all things in moderation, above all moderation itself.

I’m not making much sense today am I?
